I tried again 3 times to get that bugger to take his pill and I swear he is putting that dang pill under his tongue and then spits it out. LOL. I did get him to take it with some raw hamburger!!! I am really debating now whether to call the vet or not. I just don't want to take him to the vet again just for him to sit there for a half hour like we have. I don't know.

I have thought about buying tuna in water to see if that helps but I am also wondering if me trying to change his food is not helping the situation and not maybe giving it enough time for his system to change.

You could try small amounts at a time of water packed tuna and see how it goes. So the vet says he has irritable bowel syndrome or something like that? Is he still losing weight? Poor little baby. Hey speaking of that...have you tried baby food? I wonder if that might be more easily digested?

A good vet is one you will travel for. Luckily mine is only 3 miles away. This was the vet my mom used for many years, and when she moved to her current location it was 40 minutes away without traffic issues. Now I am south and very close, so very lucky Cider and Misty have a good vet.

I would definitely see if there is a less expensive cat food that will do what is needed for Mammacita's cat. I know when Growl had her troubles with extreme constipation that vet we took her too wanted her on a script diet that was "low residue", meaning it was more meat based and the cat would metabolize most of it so there was less to cause constipation.

I looked it up and found out the Weruva brand was perfect. Then I found out that most pet stores don't sell it but one.. Pet Valu. The stuff in there is not cheap, but it wasn't as pricey as that script stuff. Matthew and I have been regulars that ever since.

Right now we have to buy Cider's new food online. It isn't that expensive, but can't find it in the stores. Darn it, I am blanking on the name. No..wait.... Tiki Cat. That's it. The vet said that Cider would have a better chance of losing weight on it.

Of course we have Misty too, and she eats it but still wants more. I give her treats all the time, and she is always acting like we never feed her!

Always something with our babies.

I'll look into a substitute for Mammacita's food Sibs. Thanks for the suggestion. At 40.00 a bag and 2.00 per can it's pricey so if we can find same for less she'll be thrilled. Thanks Sibs!

well mammacitas vet just told her he's going to supply her with the dry food FOR FREE and my vet will give her a senior discount on the canned food. Still pricey (2.00 a can) but of course i'll help her out...meaning i'll probably buy it for her.

No worries... just had some time driving to PT so I thought I would check to see how you were doing.
I figured you were busy.

Do take some time for yourself when you can. Care giving can be quite draining.

Thanks Sibs. I know you're right and I try to take care of myself but Jon and mammacita need me so I just have to power thru.

That is the cross to bear being a caretaker. You just have to keep powering through.

Been there, still there....

At least Carp you are able to do the care taking and so did Sibby. It just seems so many people don't take care of family anymore. For whatever reasons.

I'm still care-taking with Matthew, but at a much lesser degree than I did with Dad.
